Image for Pulp mill protests bend for the world game

For almost two years now, residents and environmentalist from the city of Gualeguaychú have been protesting the construction of a Botnia pulp mill on the Uruguayan side of the shared river, and have found no better argument than to close the international bridge linking the two countries.

But an open assembly from Gualeguaychú decided on the exception, for a few hours today and tomorrow, so that Argentine fans can cross in support of their national team which will be playing Uruguay a crucial qualifier for both, with the winner most probably automatically going to South Africa.
